Actually there is no int, longint, float or double
JavaScript don't separate the types the only object which
exists in JavaScript is Number..which is integer or float depending on context.
As for my experience in win95  JavaScript work correctly with
32 bit integers. More about Number object here:

The only place where actualy the type of integer mentioned
is Math object methods floor() and round()

and as what you we're saying... it can handle either in any way, what's the maximum and minimum value i can use in any one variable?
